There are certain rules to follow while picking a flower for an anniversary. Every year of the marriage or relationship deserves a different flower. For instance, daisies are perfect for a 5th anniversary, daffodils for 10th, roses for 15th and lilies for 30th.
Red and pink roses are always a good choice if you’re not sure what to choose. Some may say they’re somewhat mainstream, but the truth is everyone likes receiving them, and everyone knows what they represent. While these colors are used to express respect and love, friendships deserve a different color – yellow. If you know someone will appreciate it, you can go crazy with colors and opt for black or blue roses instead.

When buying flowers for some one’s birthday, you should go for the bright colored ones. However, choosing a favorite flower of the birthday girl or boy is always a good idea.
Flowers you’re buying for a date should be simple, brightly colored and not too overwhelming. Tulips, orchids, and dandelions are some of the recommended types. Pick out a flower and deliver it to your date’s door when picking them up – you don’t want to force them to carry the flowers around all night. If you’ve been together for a while, again roses are the best fit.
If that’s the recipient’s cup of tea, you can go for a bouquet of Premium roses in their favorite color.

If you want to send your condolences and support to those grieving, bright flowers like lilies and daisies are a good choice. Blue or purple shades can also be appropriate since they symbolize hope and rebirth.
Pale flowers are a good way to say thank you. However, if you know the recipient’s favorite flower, you should go with that. White, pink, yellow or a combination could be the perfect way to express your gratitude.
